About Charles

I am a composer, music producer, sound designer, and eclectic musician accomplished in a wide range of styles, working collaboratively with directors and producers to optimize the value of film, television, and commercial projects.

I began composing at the age of 8 while taking private piano lessons and determined as a teenager to turn my love for music into a life-long passion. To that end, I completed undergraduate studies at Baylor University with a B.M. in composition. I went on to work on my Master's Degree in composition at Rice University and served as music director at several churches in Houston and Dallas.

For the last 8 years, I have been focused on composing for film and television. My credits include scoring with my business partner Parker Wiksell tracks placed in 3 MTV television shows and another track placed in an A&E show, an award-winning television series on PBS and a web series, 11 independent short films, several national TV / internet commercials, and a live show. We also provided sound editing for another award-winning independent film.

The premier of my song cycle "Four Poems by Emily Dickinson" for soprano voice, cello, and piano was presented by my daughter Melissa Shuen-Mallory at her senior voice recital at San Jose State University. My arrangements have been performed by St. Luke's Orchestra, New York City, St. George's Episcopal Church Choir, New York City, the St. Olaf Orchestra, St. Martin's Episcopal Church Choir, Houston, Texas, and Truro Anglican Church, Fairfax, Virginia.
